"patience" as they still try to figure out where Metro 2033's achievements have gone wrong.
The Xbox 360 version is plagued with rebellious achievements ever since the update to support 2033's Ranger Pack DLC. Must "pinpoint" fault.
The Ranger Pack released at the beginning of the month and royally screwed the achievements, and THQ has been on the case ever since. They're still trying to decide if it's something in the DLC code or a problem on Xbox Live Marketplace.
"We understand some people are still experiencing issues with achievements unlocking in the Metro 2033 Ranger Pack DLC," said THQ.
"We are currently working with Microsoft to ascertain whether this is due to a code related issue with the DLC itself, or an error in the Marketplace process whereby the DLC was added to Xbox LIVE Marketplace before the new achievement data was added - this exact issue has happened to other games in the past, but we need to be sure that this is what's happening here."
"We realize this is frustrating for those of you who have been waiting to enjoy the Ranger Pack DLC, and we ask for your patience as we try to pinpoint the exact issue and solution." If you enjoy achievement hunting then it's best to avoid the Ranger Pack DLC.
Metro 2033 is based on the work of Russian author Dmitry Glukhovsky and was developed by studio 4A. THQ has plans for a second game thanks to the first's success.
